You can call me Mr. Underpinnings. Up until now, I have been operating behind the scenes as co-editor and photographer for the excellent blog before you. But to coincide with the move from Wordpress to Blogger, and because I'm really cool and you should all totally know that I exist, I'm stepping out of the shadows! It's so nice to meet you all :)
Let me start by saying that Full Bust Lingerie is a subject that I never imagined I would know the slightest thing about and now, not to brag or anything, I probably know more than most women. Furthermore, by virtue of living with Miss Underpinnings, I now realize just how difficult it can be to find good looking, full bust wardrobe choices that are both affordable and attractive. Honestly I can't even think of the man-version of this phenomenon. But then again I'm lucky enough that if something comes in a medium, it will probably fit me just fine.
I really enjoy working with Miss Underpinnings on this blog, and not just because I get to take pictures of my girlfriend in incredibly sexy lingerie all the time. Helping full-busted women stay informed about the options that are available to them is a cause I totally believe in, and for completely non-pervy reasons. No really, I swear!
Because this is my first ever post, I want to start with something kind of general, sort of like an ice-breaker so you all know where I'm coming from. Before Miss Underpinnings was born, I thought that Victoria's Secret and department stores were the only options for women of any size and, like many people, I thought that DD was the largest possible cup size. Now, I can't get too down on myself for my lack of knowledge, because young men generally take what knowledge they can piece together about bras and call it a day.
Now some of you may be thinking, "Wow Mr. Underpinnings, its so rare to hear the perspective of a guy who actually knows a little bit about full-bust lingerie!" And you would be right. So I'm going to tell you what I think about a few things. First of all, if you haven't done it recently, you need to go get fit. Immediately. And before you go, leave your body hang-ups at home, because you might be a different size than you think you are. And that's OKAY! It really doesn't matter at all. All that matter's is that you are comfortable and wearing the correct size. Think about if you walked around wearing the wrong size shoes all the time. Not only would your feet look out of proportion to everybody, but your feet would hurt all the time. Bras are like shoes in this way. And be nice to your fitter, being fit is a sensitive moment for them as well.
Another thing about that. Any bra or lingerie set that fits you is going to look attractive. It's not about sizing up or down to get a certain look. Don't feel like you need to get a tiny cup size to be sexy or something. If it fits, its sexy. And I'm not trying to be sexist right now, I know its not about attracting men all the time, I'm not talking about that. I'm only saying that being comfortable in your body is the sexiest possible thing, and if you wear a bra that fits, you will have that.
Some lingerie companies I have really enjoyed learning about are Curvy Kate, Evollove, and Claudette. For me, those three brands consistently surprise me with interesting designs and color combinations, which I really like. A lot of times the thing I find most attractive about a bra will be if it's a) a good fit and b) brightly colored. I love colorful bras! Pinks, purples, blues, reds, greens. It could be anything. I don't know if that's true for a lot of guys, but I definitely don't fall into the stereotype of thinking black or other darkly colored bras are the sexiest (sorry 10 Things I Hate About You!). There is one bra that Miss Underpinnings owns that is the Figleaves brand, and its purple and light blue, but still not too flashy. I love that one.
Okay, I feel like I have covered a lot of meandering, rambling ground, but hopefully y'all readers of Miss Underpinnings feel like you know me a bit better now. Expect to hear from me again, I'll be popping up periodically to donate my two cents. Until then, enjoy yourselves!
If you have any questions for me, send them to the blog and the Miss will forward them my way! I'm glad to be of any help :)
